150+ Years of Experience
Ernie Duckworth started building aluminum boats nearly 40 years ago with the goal of producing the best boat that floats. It's pretty simple, really. Take a proven design and continue to improve on it, at the same time pay attention to the details. That's what we do on a daily basis. We can honestly say that because we've hired the industry's best boat builders. With our 10 most senior employees having over 165 years combined boat building experience they help lead a crew that is as passionate about building boats as you are running them. Which is why, when all is said and done, we're happy to deliver you the best boat that floats.
Here are a few of our leaders:
Gary Pomerinke, Master Boat Builder Gary started welding his first Duckworth hull back in Ernie Duckworth's shop in 1980, and he's been at it ever since. One of our most talented hull designers, teachers, and expert welders – Gary has been doing it right for almost 32 years with Duckworth.
